Should you try mediation if you cannot agree?

On Behalf of | Feb 21, 2023 | Divorce Mediation |

Divorce meditation can be a better way for you to go through the process. However, it does take some ability to agree or it will not be beneficial.

Still, you may even want to consider it if you and your spouse are having trouble coming to an agreement on the important points of your divorce. You may find the process helps you to negotiate and reach decisions.

Assistance you need

One of the nice things about mediation is you get guidance and help throughout the process. The mediator has the training to help you work through issues and reach decisions. What you could not do on your own may become easier with this third party involved.

Important notes

It is important to keep in mind that the mediator is a neutral party. It is not the same as having someone who may have bias. The mediator will not care who gets what or what your final decisions are because it has no impact on him or her. This is very important to understand because it allows the mediator to remain neutral and guide your discussions based on a natural flow and not an underlying motive.

You should not write off mediation because there are sticking points where you and your spouse cannot agree. You may be able to resolve almost everything in mediation, which will help to ensure that you have less time in court and fewer decisions made by a judge. You have more control over the situation and your future when you give mediation a chance.
